Inspiration for Finding Personal Development Blog Ideas

What Questions are People Asking?

People are typing search terms into Google all the time asking self help questions. If only you knew what they are typing in. Then you can answer their question in a blog post…

Wait…you can…

Start typing a question into Google and you find that Google finishes your question with other words people have typed in…

Have a go. Start typing in questions and see what answers come up to inspire you.

The Question Box

Another way Google can help is when you do a Google search, often a question bar pops up telling you popular questions people are asking about this topic:

Google also helps with the related search box. If you scroll down to the bottom of the search results you will see a related search box with other search terms people have typed in.

Forums and Social Media

Another place to get ideas are forums such as Reddit and Quora. People are always asking questions there about personal development topics and it’s a great source of information.

Also, don’t forget the problems and issues your friends and family are talking about on social media. Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn can all be significant sources of article inspiration.

What Have You Searched For?

Many of my most popular articles have been on topics I’ve searched for myself on Google but found little or no information. I’ve then researched to answer my problem and written a blog post about it. This kills two birds with one stone. You find a solution for your own problem and write a killer blog article to help other people.

Write What You Know and Are Passionate About

Sometimes the best articles are on the stuff that you know and are passionate about. The best thing about these kinds of articles is that you can write from the heart and it takes less time because you don’t have to do much research.

Think about challenges you’ve had in the past. How have you dealt with them. Can your story as a blog post inspire other people who have the same problems.

Talk to People

Another substantial source of inspiration is to talk to people. What kinds of challenges are your friends facing? What do people talk about? Can you write a blog post to solve their problems? You can even share it with them and get your first reader!
